Unhappy Full Extractions with Novocaine

Hi - scheduled for full extractions and immediate dentures on the 20th of this month and am really scared! My dentist wants to pull all of my teeth using only novocaine. I have 24 that need to be pulled and most of them are severly decayed. Went in for an appointment the other day and he wanted to pull a few of them that day "to see how it goes". Had to work the next day so told him no way. He seemed to be worried that they are going to crumble when he tries to extract them instead of popping right out. Is novocaine going to be enough pain management for this? I am a big weenie when it comes to pain and am scared out of my mind! Has anybody had full extractions with just novocaine before? Is it enough?

never had 24 pulled with just novacaine but i did have 2 pulled with just novacaine and i didn't feel anything but a little bit of pressure. i was terrified of having it done that way but after it was done i realized it was nothing to worry about.
the dentist even ran into a problem with a curved root and i didn't feel any pain. hope this helps you.
if your that worried about it tell the dr that you would rather see an oral surgeon to have them removed

Hi! I got 15 teeth taken out when I got my dentures 2 weeks ago or so. They gave me local anesthesia, which may have not been novocaine, but my dad is pretty sure that is what they gave me. Anyhow, the worst part was the shots. Once the medicide started to work, i could only feel them doing things, but i didnt feel pain. Only occasionally, becuase they put less on the bottom, so i felt a little pain once in a while. But it really wasnt so bad, only the shots were kinda weird but i HATE shots so maybe that is why! Just dont have them put you to sleep or anything, that can be dangerous!! I hope everything goes well!
